Many people, particularly in the entertainment world, encounter drug trouble especially if they meet with early success.

They work weird hours, are surrounded by sharks, surrounded by users. Making so much money but learn too late that it was an IRS treadmill and they put all their savings up their nose.

Williams' publicist Mara Buxbaum told The Hollywood Reporter: “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

per:

Sad news.

Also sad that apparently now my main source of news is the WoV site.

I was never a huge fan of his stand up, though I admired how quickly his mind operated. He was great in Good Will Hunting.

I think if you go into entertainment you are predisposed to it.
